1. The best thing that's happened to this ABSCBN-GMA fight is that hindi na palaging late si Vice Ganda sa Showtime. Before the fight you get the feeling that Showtime intentionally makes Vice Ganda come out late so the audience stays long enough to confirm whether Vice Ganda's not absent.
Now that the competition is tough, Vice Ganda absent could mean Showtime's drop the way WilTime BigTime dropped. And disappeared.
2. Whether Aldub or Pastillas wins, we the audience always lose. Hours watching the show means hundreads of hours lost from reading James Salter's novels about how love can make you rich.
Watching weekly Aldub means hours lost from, say, watching Bisaya Short Films that teach you how to think critically, dress in style and be sexy and wealthy like Vice Ganda, Sarah Silverman and Dolphy.
The Aldub and Showtime shows can't make you wealthy, sexy, or contribute to your physical beauty, social status and intelligence. But they make you happy and that is the most important thing, isn't it?
3. The thing with Lea Salonga's rant about wanting to be deep is that Lea's ironically no different from the Aldub she's thought to bash.
Aldub is selling shallowness. And Lea's selling deepness. Both of them are selling you a commodity. Now what are you buying?
